    I want to switch to Halifax for the £100, but then plan on leaving once it's credited into my account. Not immediately, maybe a few weeks later. Is this possible or will they just take it back?

    Thanks all

    Any such clawback clause will be found in the switching incentive T&Cs. If you can't find one, they're isn't one.

    IME I switched to the Halifax and used the account for around a month before closing it.

    That was late last year so may not be the case anymore.
